Basil Woods Junior, a prominent group of childcare institutions based in Bangalore, India, is has expanded its reach with multiple branches, establishing a network of centers dedicated to the Montessori philosophy. Their branch in Bhubaneswar, Odisha, is dedicated to nurturing young minds through their unique Montessori philosophy. With a focus on holistic development, Basil Woods Junior emphasizes the Physical Quotient (PQ), Emotional Quotient (EQ), and Spiritual Quotient (SQ) of each child. Basil Woods Juniors, a Montessori preschool in Bhubaneswar, faced initial challenges in streamlining its operational processes. They sought a solution to automate accounting and improve parent communication, leading them to discover Illumine.



Challenge #1

Manual and inefficient billing

Challenge #2

Ineffective parent communication

At Basil Woods, all accounting and billing processes were carried out manually, resulting in a workflow that was both slow and unsystematic. The absence of automation hindered their ability to operate at an optimal pace, impacting overall effectiveness.

Furthermore, the communication channels used to interact with parents were scattered and disorganized. This lack of a centralized system led to crucial information being dispersed in a haphazard manner, causing confusion and potentially leading to miscommunication.


Solution #1

Automated billing and invoices

Solution #2

Centralised parent communication

Illumine’s simple and intuitive UI empowered non-specialized staff to handle accounting efficiently, eliminating the need for a trained accountant. Illumine’s parent app kept parents involved in their child’s learning journey with real-time updates, concern management, and lesson sharing, and enabled effective two-way communication.

"The beautiful UI and intuitive features of Illumine's parent app have attracted our parents, leading to more active engagement. The prompt support from the team has been exceptional."
